The Swendsen-Wang process provides one possible dynamics for the Qstate Potts model in statistical physics. Computer simulations of this process are widely used to estimate the expectations of various observables (random variables) of a Potts system in the equilibrium (or Gibbs) distribution. The legitimacy of such simulations depends on the rate of convergence of the process to equilibrium, often known as the mixing rate. Empirical observations suggest that the Swendsen-Wang process mixesdoi:10.1145/258533.258662 dblp:conf/stoc/GoreJ97 fatcat:uwxk3c5gnrcnnaghavra5jav3q
